Shopping in Paris: Fleux

One of our favorite stores in Paris is definitely Fleux. Located in the trendy neighborhood of Le Marais, this part home goods, part lifestyle store is the best place to find fun gifts, quirky home decor and hard to find furniture.

V is for Vacation

When retro meets modern meets desert inspired... You get the V Palm Springs! This is where you need to stay if you want a laid-back vacay in PS.

Last March, Justin and I went on our annual Cali vacation and did a roadtrip to Las Vegas to see the Backstreet Boys's residency show. The first half of the trip was very rocky; the night before leaving for LA, I was hospitalized over night for kidney stones. We almost cancelled the trip all together. 
Thanks to the beautiful weather, the desert heat, healthy food and strong a** medicine, I was able to enjoy my time there! At the show, I unfortunately wasn't able to dance as much as I would have loved to (thanks to those kidney stones!) but it still left me speechless & amazed nonetheless! 


30 days in LA: Joshua Tree

Two hours driving south-east from L.A., a couple of Starbucks runs and a $20 entrance fee later, Justin & I were there, standing in the middle of thousands of Joshua Trees.
